Worse Than I've Dreamed

Goodnight 2012 Moon
"For years my list
remained unchanged:  I fear
the dark of night,
hide from the burning

sun, and hate our mean fate."

I have a list
of things I dread;
I keep it tucked
in folds of grey,

fear and chaos in my brain.

For years my list
remained unchanged:  I fear
the dark of night,
hide from the burning

sun, and hate our mean fate.

In the darkest moments
my list gives peace;
no harm is worse
than what I've dreamed.

When you died I lined out

one and added two
I had no reason
to fear before, must
keep the chaos contained.
